May is Scholastic National Family Reading Month!
2021 marks the 25th year of National Family Reading Month which celebrates and encourages families to read more together.
Most of us know how important reading together is and its long-term value to our children’s success in school and in life. However, we also know it is not always that easy to put into practice with our busy schedules and increasing competition with screen time.
That is why we ask families to take the 31 Day Family Reading Challenge– to inspire you to make reading together for at least 10 minutes every day a focus, to create positive, long lasting reading habits and lifelong readers!
We hope you enjoy exploring the universe of wonderful stories together– from different types of books across many authors and genres, and have a great time taking this challenge!
How to take the 31 Day Family Reading Challenge:
- Sign up to join the 31 Day Reading Challenge starting 1 May 2021.
- Use the Reading Rocket Log as a fun way for your child to track their reading all month in May.
- Follow along with Scholastic Australia on Facebook and Instagram for tips, inspiration, motivation and fun giveaways!
